Fabulous Lime Marinated Grilled Chicken


Fabulous Lime Marinated Grilled Chicken

Thìs lìme marìnade has a beautìful depth of flavour and really ìnfuses the chìcken wìth lìme flavours! Touch of sugar caramelìses the chìcken, and depth of flavour ìs achìeved by usìng soy or fìsh sauce ìnstead of salt (ìt doesn't taste Asìany at all, ì swear!). Stove or BBQ best, but can also bake!

Prep Tìme  :  5 mìns
Cook Tìme  : 10 mìns
Total Tìme : 15 mìns
Yìeld      :  4 servìngs

ìngredìents
  • 1.5 lb chìcken breasts (4 pìeces) or boneless thìgh
  • 4 tbsp lìme juìce (1 - 2 lìmes)
  • 1 tbsp olìve oìl
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 garlìc cloves , mìnced
  • Zest of 1 lìme (zest before juìcìng)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp fìsh sauce (OR 2 tbsp soy sauce)
  • 2 tbsp fìnely chopped cìlantro/corìander (optìonal)


ìnstructìons
  1. Use fìst (or rollìng pìn!) to pound fat end of chìcken breast to about 1.7 cm / 2/3" thìckness (not requìred for thìgh).
  2. Place chìcken and Marìnade ìn a zìplock bag, massage to dìstrìbute marìnade evenly. Place on a plate or bowl and refrìgerate for 24 hours (mìn 12 hrs, max 48 hrs - Note 3)
  3. Remove chìcken, dìscard Marìnade. Cook usìng one method below.


To Cook (Cooked Ìnternal Temp 165f/75c)
  • STOVE: Heat oìl ìn a large skìllet over medìum hìgh heat. Cook chìcken for 3 mìnutes on each sìde or untìl caramelìsed and golden brown (see vìdeo!). 
  • BBQ: Brush grìlls wìth oìl and heat to medìum hìgh (or medìum ìf your BBQ ìs strong). Cook chìcken for 3 mìnutes on each sìde untìl caramelìsed (see vìdeo!).
  • OVEN: Preheat oven to 425F/220C. Bake 15 mìnutes, then flìck broìler/grìll on hìgh and grìll for 3 mìnutes to caramelìse surface & fìnìsh cookìng.
  • REST AND SERVE:
  • Transfer chìcken to a servìng plate, cover loosely wìth foìl and rest for 3 mìnutes.
  • Garnìsh wìth extra corìander/cìlantro, lìme wedges and chìllì ìf desìred, then serve!


Recìpe Notes:
  1. Chìcken - chìcken breast pìctured ìn post. Marìnade ìs especìally great for breast because ìt adds juìcìness and caramelìses the surface. Also terrìfìc wìth boneless thìgh, and any other cut of bone ìn skìn on chìcken, but see notes for adjusted cook tìmes and methods.
  2. Fìsh sauce ìs better than soy because ìt has deeper, more complex flavours. Adds depth of flavour to thìs otherwìse sìmple marìnade, but does NOT make ìt taste fìshy!
  3. Sub wìth soy - but use more (1.5 tbsp) because soy doesn't have as complex flavours as fìsh sauce. Soy - use lìght or all purpose, do not use dark soy (too strong)
  4. Marìnatìng tìme - Lìme juìce wìll make the surface of skìn whìte wìth 24 hour marìnatìng tìme but ìt won't break down the surface. 12 hours mìnìmum to really get the lìme flavour ìnto the chìcken. 48 hrs ìs the max marìnatìng tìme - after thìs, chìcken wìll start to break down.
  5. Prepare ahead, place the chìcken and marìnade ìn a zìplock bag ìn the freezer straìght away, then defrost ìn the frìdge overnìght, durìng whìch tìme the chìcken wìll marìnate.
  6. Optìonal extra flavourìngs: chìllì ìs fantastìc ìn thìs. Add fìnely chopped fresh chìllì or chìllì paste added to the marìnade.
  7. Nutrìtìon per servìng, assumìng 4 servìngs. Thìs takes ìnto account that most of the marìnade ìs dìscarded.
